February 11, 2019 // Franchising.com // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Dream Vacations recently earned highest honors with its three prestigious Gold statuettes at the 2019 Travvy Awards. The home-based travel agency franchise was the most decorated travel agency in attendance and won in every category in which it was nominated.
The annual Travvy Awards - known as the Academy Awards of the travel industry - were held Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at Gotham Hall in New York City to recognize the highest standards of excellence in the travel industry by honoring travel companies, travel products, travel agencies and destinations for their outstanding achievement.
Suppliers, destinations and individuals from across the world of travel are eligible to submit their nominations to be considered annually for the honor of being recognized as an innovator in the industry. This year, more than 100,000 votes - the largest voting block of agents in history - were cast to determine the 2019 Travvy Award winners. These winners were then honored during an awards dinner and presentation attended by the finalists, industry leaders and travel professionals from around the world.
A member of the International Franchise Association and the number one franchise for military veterans, Dream Vacations won Gold in the Best Travel Agency Consortium Cooperative or Franchise Group category. It also won two Gold awards in the two technology categories - Best Travel Technology Planner and Best Travel Planning Technology - for the resources they provide which enable work from home travel agents to work from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Dream Vacations is the only travel franchise to make a significant technology investment with the purpose of creating a better online customer experience with technology that is completely custom and unique.
“Winning the Travvy Awards was an incredible way to kick off 2019, and what makes these Travvy wins even more special is that it was determined by those who know us best: travel agents and their clients,” said Debbie Fiorino, senior vice president of Dream Vacations. “Because our franchisees are our customers, we not only care more about them, but we value their feedback and use it to guide us when developing new technology tools to help them run their businesses more efficiently, so they can focus their efforts selling travel.”
